About
Walking down the lanes of Agra leaves one absorbed by the aroma of the different spices, various food stalls and the overall diverse cuisines of the city. Be it while looking at the century-old spice shops at Rawatpada or eating the delectable and famous mutton stew at Pakiza Meat Shop, it is a wonder how different spices and flavours blend into the living history of the city, and how modern alterations to the original dishes over time have created new flavours that still retain the cultural significance of the dish. Join us on a food tour across the old city as we take you through a journey of myriad palates, with a variety of different dishes ranging from Mughlai non-vegetarian cuisine to braj ke bhalle, and discuss how the different spices/preparations used by generations have influenced the food and living culture of the city.

A local and loveable perspective
Sep 2019 • Solo
Agra heritage walk offers an adventure in the narrow and quaint streets of Agra to make us discover its unique charm through the perspective of some artists, who love this city and make us fall in love with it too. Those artists make us look beyond the famous Taj Mahal to see the endless wonders of the heritage of Agra that history left behind. Also, keep your eyes widely opened cause you'll see a lot of magical everyday scenes within the chaos of this fuzzy city.
So go have a sip of the best chaï of Agra, do not forget to pass by the old mosque and always end a walk with a flute piece and I promise you won't be disappointed.
